Quoets for Poets: 8/8/13

“A sculptor works with substances that his audience may never have touched; a musician plays an instrument that his listeners have never mastered.  But a poet uses the same words that hundreds of millions of people use every day to marry, fight, console themselves, entertain, grieve, and order cheeseburgers.”

—David Orr

“You don’t make a poem with ideas, but with words.”

—Stephane Malarme
